OLUBUKOLA ADESOKAN GRADUATES WITH FIRST CLASS FROM CPUT

Knowledge is power and several people hope to have access to a quality education. However, the Nigerian education system has delayed a number of bright minds from furthering their studies.

It is no longer news that the education system in the country is not easy to get into, especially at the university level. Several people have decided to learn menial jobs after getting admission proved to be difficult. A few numbers of Nigerians are however lucky to study outside the country. Legit.ng recently gathered the report of a young lady, who despite all odds graduated with a first class from a South African university. Esther Olubukola Adesokan is one of the numerous people that achieved great feats after getting an education in a foreign country. The joyous lady took to her Instagram handle to recount the setbacks she faced.

According to her, she finished her secondary school education in Nigeria with a very good result but was unable to gain admission into the university. She became a tailors’ apprentice among other thing before she finally went to South Africa where she had to go back to secondary school before proceeding to a university. She said

A very big thank you to God for making this graduation day possible after 8 years of finishing high school in Nigeria!!!! Had a nice ssce results and passed jamb( my score was more than the minimum requirement of gaining admission)but won’t still gain admission. After spending several amount of money to process admission and all seems futile. I decided to be a tailor apprentice instead of sitting at home but still processing my admission. When we keep spending money every year to gain admission, then I got admitted to Mapoly to study Mass communications (Part time ) but that was not part of my plans. So my brother decided to send me to South Africa to study. Getting to South Africa and tendered my results, I was told my Nigeria certificate (ssce) was below standard and should repeat high school. That was the lowest point for me in my education advancement. I decided to start from grade 11 ( Ss2) and I was the oldest in class 😂 but to the glory of God I passed Matric nicely as well and I got accepted to study Human Resources Management. Yesterday 14/12/2018, I bagged CumLaude (first class) in that field. I give all Glory to God and big thanks to my family and friends for the love and support. It’s been a long journey but am grateful I did not give up!!! #Cputsummergrad2018 #OnlyGodMadeitpossible #nevergiveup #omoagege👌🏾 🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬x🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦
